This is my favorite holiday because ‘loving one another’ is the most important thing...it’s why we were created.
I didn’t feel loved while I was growing up and I feel a bit sorry for my parents about that because after raising three children myself, I can’t even put into words how amazing it is to love your children and have them love you back.
There is one principle I have learned about love over the years:
You can only be loved to the extent you allow another to truly know you. (Or, in other words ‘Intimacy’).
And yet, being vulnerable is a very tough thing for me. But, without being vulnerable I won’t get the love I deserve.
Shedding light into the dark areas of my life, things that I am embarrassed about, things that I am ashamed of, removes the darkness and replaces it with the brightness of love.
And doing so bonds us closer.
It’s as simple as that; it’s as difficult as that. And I’m a work in progress, always.
Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone in my life that I love, especially Capt, who is forever showing me how much he truly loves me.
